Mrs. Rucker from Richland WA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need transportation for an overnight trip from Richland, WA to Portland, OR to create lifelong memories most wouldn’t have the chance to make otherwise.
As a Title I school with the majority of our children coming from low income/high poverty families, our students face many adversities in their homes, at school, and out in our community. Although our families are involved in their children’s learning, many do not have the opportunity, time, or means to provide basic material items, let alone unique lifetime experiences.
Our students are motivated and get so excited when learning grows outside the ordinary.
They enjoy being challenged and they persevere when trying to solve problems. They are diverse, with each student bringing unique qualities to every classroom. Our students work together to learn from one another and support each other on their educational journeys, as they grow into contributing members of our society.
The 5th graders will leave early Thursday morning, May 31st. Our first stop will be at The Columbia Gorge Discovery Center in The Dalles, Oregon, where the students will experience a live presentation of the Raptor Interpretive program, tour the facility learning about the history of the Gorge and the Lewis and Clark expedition, our school name sake, while also attending a guided tour of the grounds surrounding the facility. After the Discovery Center and a picnic lunch, students will board the buses again and we’ll continue our field trip to the Bonneville Fish Hatchery where students will see their unit on salmon come alive. They will watch mature salmon swimming up the fish ladder and see a sturgeon in real life. After departing the fish hatchery, students will arrive at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI). Students will spend the evening participating in a variety of hands on STEM activities, visiting the planetarium, and watching a presentation on the science of sound. After spending the night in the museum, students will awake the next morning, continue exploring the museum, and also tour a real submarine, the USS Blueback, before leaving. Next, students will spend the day at the Oregon Zoo exploring the amazing animals they have.
The annual fifth grade OMSI trip is not only an exciting science adventure that will provide lasting memories for students, it is also our culminating science exploratory for the year.
The memories students create while on this trip will have lasting positive effects both academically and socially for each of our children. I went on this same trip when I was in 5th grade at LC and still have fond memories! Thank in advance for your support on this adventure!
